"The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn"-Maria Montessori

I have spent the past 30 years nurturing the growth and development of young minds. I have a true passion for children and love watching them learn new things. I feel it is my responsibility to help prepare them for a lifelong journey of learning. I believe in challenging children to try new things, and there are no limitations on imagination. The best part of being an early childhood educator is being able to watch a child grow from infancy into an active toddler, onto an exploring preschooler and then an inquisitive school-aged child. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
